Aligned interest for client’s objectives and goals is construction management. The CM will advise the client in pre-construction and construction services. What is better than a construction partner who has the client’s objectives and goals in mind for the duration of the project? The CM will lend its expertise to the client and design professional, in the areas of budgeting, value engineering, scheduling, constructability review, phasing, site logistics and safety. The CM will do the valuable analysis so the owner will have a more thorough set of plans and understanding of schedule and associated project costs. With over 30 years perfecting the building process, you can rely on the expertise of the Karp team to skillfully manage all phases of your project.

When making decisions to buy, sell, rent, renovate, build new or just update facilities, a knowledgeable team’s advice is indispensable. Our commitment to giving the best advice and guidance to homeowners, non-profits and institutions has helped Karp become a leader in this field.
